Very limited supply of the "Lite" version
The Model 98 Lite Titanium Hammer is a fantastic upgrade for any Tippmann marker. Since it's made of titanium, its about half the weight of the stock hammer, which, in turn, will reduce kick back and increase rate of fire. One of the neat things about the Lite hammer is that the response trigger can't keep up with it. For me, this is cool, since I don't have the RT, but for some, it prevents them from even buying it. So when someone brags about how fast their gun is with the response, you just tell them your hammer could outshoot the RT any day... literally
Dark Horizon made a fantastic product with this one. The speed of this bolt is quite amazing considering it is only 65 dollars. They have great customer service and it ships within roughly 3 - 7 days depending on where you live.
I was quite impressed the first time I played a game with my new bolt. It actually reduced chopping and the noise of my Flatline [FLATLINES ARE INCREDIBLY LOUD], which gave my gun a more sniper - like feel. I played about 7 games and shot about a 1000 balls and only chopped like... well... I can't remember exactly, but if I had to guess I'd say I chopped around 12 balls [which is really good compared to what I was doing with the stock hammer].
The great thing about titanium is that as you use it more and more, the bolt becomes tougher and tougher. It also has an incredibly slick surface which allows the hammer to move through the gun with less friction. If you want a FANTASTIC bolt, I would recommend that you purchase one from Dark Horizon. But if you want the Lite version, I suggest you hurry up and get one before they run out.
I love this product!!! Go buy it and I'm sure you'll be just as impressed as I was... I think... maybe... hopefully... well... on the other hand, you might just think its a piece of crap that should have been thrown in the dumpster along with 8 track tapes. Oh well...
10 out of 10

The hammer shouldn't affect ball breakage unless it is being used in conjunction with a simple LP set-up. With less weight to throw back, the M98 can be run at a lower pressure. Only then will the ball breaks be affected.

If you think about itthe lighter hammer would reduce recoil by lowering the weight of internal parts that are slamming back and forth in the marker. The lower recoil in turn causes less movement of the muzzle and therefore less shifting of the shots due to the muzzle moving up.
Now dude, if your tippmann is chopping balls there is something wrong with it. I have never had one chop in my tippmann no due to a defective ball or user error.
